Format: Paperback
Judith Lasater is very well respected in her field. I have other books of hers which I am delighted to own, but this one - this one, was such a disappointment to me!

Perhaps the first disappointment is my 'error'. The book is published by Rodmell Press Yoga Shorts - and SHORT it is, only 63 pages long and that includes the 'acknowledgements' and 'about the author' and blank pages. There are only 6 poses given for pregnancy and 3 for post-pregnancy - though they are photographed clearly and are well 'talked through'. In mitigation for it's brevity, I can see that perhaps if this book has been aimed directly at non-yoga-practising mums-to-be then it is straight-forward for them to follow, in that only one asana has been given to alleviate each of 6 'conditions' of pregnancy [eg cat to lesson lower back pain], along with detailed explanation of the 'condition'. I can imagine that a short routine of half a dozen postures would get practised by a beginner over a more detailed book where you have to pick out your own programme.

However, my biggest shock was to see Warrior II for post pregnancy. It is given as the 'for strength' pose out of the triumvirate of 'for flexibility/ strength/ abdominal muscle strength'. The foot placement is very correctly talked through, but it instructs to bring the knee to a right angle - something which many of my seasoned non-pregnant students find difficult. Thinking changes - and this book does have a 2004 published date - but the current advice to post-partum mums is NOT to practise standing postures which place asymmetrical forces on the pelvis, as all the joints are still lax for some months after birth.

This all said, the reason I was attracted to buy the book, was the inclusion of the pregnancy and post-natal positive mantras.

Not much there 18 Mar 2005
By Karen Kordisch - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm a yoga teacher, about to teach a prenatal class. I bought this book because Judith Lasater is an excellent teacher and I hoped to get some ideas for my class. The 23 pages of this book devoted to prenatal yoga were quite helpful. I just expected more. This is billed as a Rodmell Press "Yoga Shorts" and it is. The book would probably be most helpful for a pregnant woman who is new to yoga. She would learn 6 poses, 3 of them supported. For everyone else, I'd recommend going with Lasater's RELAX AND RENEW.

It did not give much more information that Lasater's original book on Restoring and Renewing the body. I was really hoping that it had more poses and more information.

A good basic primer. I expected more photos or diagrams showing safe ways to do yoga postures while pregnant. I ordered it to give to some ladies who take my yoga classes. Better than nothing.

A little disappointing - limited asana selection 17 Oct 2013
By Elaina - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Great for new students to practice at home because there are simple instructions and images of props. Lacking for teachers who have exposure to restorative and iyengar teachings.

I love Judith Lasater, but this book left me wanting more. There are about 5 asanas presented (of course in great detail with pictures). As a teacher with experience in restorative and iyengar style, nothing new was presented. To be fair, I have used the principles and asanas in her book as a creative jumping point for teaching prenatal yoga. I would recommend this book to a yoga student who has only had exposure to vinyasa, hot, power yoga prior to pregnancy as these simple postures will change their lives. For a teacher or student of restorative these may seem basic. Her mantras offered in the end also disappointed me, as again I felt they were basic and left me wanting more. But there is nothing wrong with a book that drives you to expand on the topic and find your own creativity!
